Its electric pink color is a bit darker than the style trending in the state. Bubblegum aromas are out front, followed by cherry and strawberry notes that also fill the palate. Kiwi flavors persist on the finish. It gets bogged down at times, but there is still plenty to enjoy. Best Buy. —S.S.

The 2016 Chardonnay Cold Creek from Ste. Michelle is a good effort that gives up forward notes of juicy apple and citrus fruit, medium body, and a rounded, easygoing texture. It would be a good house white for drinking over the coming year or so.
